Matyson for Lunch

Specifically, I'm interested in their burger. Is it any good or should I go for something else?

  1. The burger is excellent, but everything is good. I usually try to get somehting I couldn't easily get somewhere else.

      We were there for lunch this afternoon. Turns out they were out of the burger (go figure...). So I had the pasta special which was ricotta cavatelli in a beef short rib sauce and my friend had the braised lamb sandwich. The pasta was pretty good and my friend liked his sandwich.

    2. How is Matyson for a business lunch? I know the tables are cramped and it can get loud for dinner, but will it be crowded or loud around 12:30? Thanks.

        Hard to predict, but the tables are very close together.
        Maybe consider R2L - great atmosphere and not at all crowded when I've been there. Prices aren't bad.
        Or, if it's not too far, Chops - also quiet, tables spread apart, and very good for lunch.
